ELIS To Release New Album Recordings As Tribute To Fallen Frontwoman

August 2, 2006

ELIS, the Liechtenstein-based gothic metal band whose singer, Sabine Dünser, suffered a cerebral hemorrhage on July 7 during rehearsal and passed away the following day in hospital, has decided to release the already completed recordings for its new album, "Griefshire", as a tribute to their fallen frontwoman. "Sabine denoted 'Griefshire' always as her 'baby' and it would be her biggest wish that the CD will be released," the group writes on its web site.

Dünser was born June 27, 1977 and joined ELIS, then still known as ERBEN DER SCHOPFUNG, in 2001. The follow-up to 2004's "Dark Clouds in a Perfect Sky" was completed at Mastersound Studios in Stuttgart with producer Alexander Krull (ATROCITY, LEAVES' EYES). A video for "Der Letzte Tag", taken from the last CD, can be viewed at this location (right-click and "Save Target As" 6.4 MB, Windows Media).
